The Vikings and the Owls ended the half with two shots each.

In the second half, Kelly made a key defensive save to deflect Ashley Levya's (Walpole, Mass.) shot to keep Westfield State from taking the lead.

Salem's Brown (Milford, Mass.) took a free kick and her shot was too high as her shot hit the crossbar.
